David Novick's Color Illusion Page: "Brazen" Munker Illusions

This page presents "brazen" Munker illusions, where the apparently contrasting colors are directly adjacent.

The color in the vertical stripes looks salmon and yellow but is actually the same color (RGB 249,200,62). In this version, the illusion still works even though the illusory colors are adjacent.
Here's the second of the new-version Munker illusions: The color in the vertical stripes looks greenish and purplish blue but is actually the same color (RGB 35,151,250). The illusion still works even though the illusory colors are adjacent.
Here's the third of the new-version Munker illusions: The color in the vertical stripes looks yellow and orange but is actually the same color (RGB 232,255,0). The illusion still works even though the illusory colors are adjacent.
Here's the fourth of the new-version Munker illusions. The color in the vertical stripes looks blue and green but is actually the same color (RGB 34,253,142). The illusion still works even though the illusory colors are adjacent.
After the previous examples with adjacent illusory colors, I'm trying something even more brazen: making the illusory colors actually contiguous! Here's a first example, where both inner rectangles are RGB 100,245,161.
Here's the second Munker illusion in my "brazenly contiguous" Munker: The inner rectangles appear to be colored lemon and peach but are actually the same color (RGB 254,250,41). The illusion diminishes as the image is zoomed.
Here's the third (and final) "brazenly contiguous" Munker illusion, with more subtle foreground colors: The inner rectangles appear to be colored yellow and orange but are actually the same color (RGB 254,226,3).
Here's a color-completion illusion in the same "brazenly contiguous" setup of the Munker illusions in previous tweets. The background inner rectangles look greenish and purplish but are both white.
Munker illusions can have the illusory colors fully adjacent. In this example, the alternating stripes look blueish-green on the left and yellow-green on the right, although they're actually both the same color (RBG 101,236,62).
In this example, the alternating stripes look orange on the left and lemon on the right, although they're actually both the same color (RBG 215,218,40).
In this last example, the alternating stripes look blue on the left and green on the right, although they're actually both the same color (RBG 100,245,163).
